I don't beleive you can without starting over.  But you can run dselect again and
load any or all of the remaining packages. I know it's tedious scrolling through some
2000+ packages, but when you get done you'll have exactly what "you" want on your
computer. Simply select what you want and accept all the dependant packages that
dselect recommends. At the same time you can select for removal any package that
you've tried but don't want to keep.

Read the help page in dselect for more info.
